Tonja provided post-partum doula services after both my girls and I highly recommend her! She’s got the wisdom and maturity to go above and beyond what you think you need to serve you with what you really need. I thought I just needed someone to get the house in order and the laundry under control. What she provided was a listening ear and words of comfort that told me I wasn’t alone in everything I was going through and that I was going to make it through. She recognized my earliest symptoms of post-partum depression and acted as my guardian angel to get me the help I desperately needed. Not only did I end up with a house that wasn’t in chaos and clean clothes in the closet (not to mention meals in my freezer), she blessed with me a renewed confidence in myself and my ability to be a mother. Tonja is a treasure that money really can’t buy. A post-partum doula can make all the difference in those first few hectic weeks. Don’t hesitate to give yourself the gift of Tonja’s service!
